The Garage Center for Contemporary Culture, Ad Marginem Publishing House, and Pro Helvetia, a Swiss art foundation, have announced a joint competition among young Russian designers. The winner will create a cover design for the joint editions of The Garage and Ad Marginem.
The competition will be held in the form of a two-day workshop in the Garage, which will be held by the director of the Swiss publishing house JRP | Ringier Lionel Beauvier and the art director and chief designer of the publishing house Gilles Gavillet (agency Gavillet & Rust). Participants will be given folders with 30 images and text, from which designers themselves need to collect a book about art.

At the seminar, participants will be told about the formats of such publications, the correct use of materials, approaches to font selection, visual codes, and the production of books as art. To participate in the contest, you need to perform a test back, fill out a form and attach a portfolio. Application rules and assignments can be downloaded from the Garage website.
